Tomato Salad with Basil

I love tomatoes and my favorite ones are the Spanish sort - big beefy and juicy... like these below...

They are huge! This photo is from my recent trip to Spain, these tomatoes were in the window of the local green grocers and were so cheap as well.

It's still lovely and sunny which is a surprise, I just fancied a sunny simple dish at the weekend and have a pot of basil that is exploding on the windowsill

It looks a little droopy here! I have now watered it - poor thing
I decided I needed tomatoes , mozzarella , avocado , basil and olive oil - choose your favorite tomatoes - chop everything and add some good fruity olive oil..mmmmm... You could also add some grated Parmesan or olives.

You can't really see too well from the photos but there are a mixture of plum tomatoes, cherry tomatoes and some lovely yellow ones too.
Oh it was delicious! Served with some toasted olive brushetta bread that I discovered in my new favorite shop Aldi .....
I shall enter this into a new blog challenge that I have recently discovered  by Karen over at Lavender and Loveage
